Beginning with version 6.1 of All Orders, you can assign time to a work order by employee then generate time based cost reports.
To add time you will need at least one service item that has a primary unit of measure of either minute or hour. Refer to items for how to create a service item. In practice you should create a service item for each type of activity. E.g. Packaging, Assembly etc. The reason is that All Orders uses the service item 'Cost' for costing the time spent on a particular work order.
You can include the service item in bill of materials just like you do any other component.
In the Employee list you can set the default service item to be used when an employee adds time.
You can add time to any unfinished work order. Open up an existing work order or create a new one.
Click the Details column for any step and select 'Assign Time'.
You will then see a dialog as follows:
Complete the form as follows
Name: Select the name of employee / other name or vendor who is performing the task.
Start: Enter the starting data and time.
Duration: Enter the time in hours. You can option click End and enter the ending date and time.
Comment: Use comment to enter a notation about the task performed.
Costing Item: If not auto-filled enter a costing item which All Orders will use for costing purposes.
After you have competed the time entry, click Save Time Entry button . You can add as many time entries as you wish. When complete, click 'Save & Close'.
You can also using the stopwatch feature in all orders which uses the Start Time, Stop Time and Pause Time button to start, stop and pause time.
